Yes. "falde" is used both literally and in figurative speech.
Min opmærksomhed falder nu (my attention is decreasing now) Drengen faldt og slog sig (the boy fell and hurt himself) Han faldt på knæ (he fell to his knees) Hvis du ikke passer på, falder du (if you are not careful, you will fall) Jeg hørte noget falde på gulvet (I heard something fall on the floor)
In English, "fall for" has the following meanings (from thefreedictionary): 1. To feel love for someone; be in love with someone: I fell for you the first time I saw you in the park. They immediately fell for each other. 2. To be deceived or swindled by something: The gullible dupe fell for the con artist's scheme and lost $200,000.
Because i did not understand the english "He fell for the beautiful girl." , I looked into google translator and got in german "Er verliebte sich in das schöne Mädchen" which is in english "He fell in love for the beautiful girl.° That is a sentence, I know and I understand. So next time I entered this as solution here, but this was not accepted. - So i am sorry that I am not able to get english sentences correct. The explanations given in this thread before, don't give me help neither to understand between both english sentences.
